Royal Spoonbills Nesting

The first recording of Royal Spoonbills nesting at Lake McIntyre occurred in January. This rare event was not publicised at the time of nesting as nesting
place was in a position where the birds could have easily been disturbed. Three chicks were hatched and they all fledged in February. The photo is
of the 3 young Spoonbills soon after they had emerged from the nest. We will eagerly await the next breeding season to see if the adults return to
nest again.
